ICE! at Gaylord Palms

Who says the holidays in Florida are all about sunshine and palm trees? NOT US! Today we went to ICE at the Gaylord Palms with Mom-Mom, Mrs. Katy and my good buddy Gavin. Fun Facts About ICE!

1. Nearly 2,000,000 pounds of ice is used to create ICE!
2. Nearly 5,000 blocks of ice is hand carved and transformed into a winter wonderland.
3. 9 degrees Fahrenheit is the average temperature inside
4. 1500+ fluorescent and fiber optic lights will be frozen within the ice, creating a magical holiday experience.

Jillian's favorite part was their, slippery ice slides.
More than 18,000 total square feet of space is covered by the ICE! attraction. Kept at a brisk 9 degrees, the unique structure housing ICE! is also known as the "Florida Fridge." It is believed to be the first of its kind in North America Jillian was so cold...however she was loved every minute and did not want to leave!
After our ICE experience, we were all in need for some nice hot chocolate....Yummy!
Thanks everyone for such a special day...all my sweet messages and calls really helped me get though this time (I miss you so much Glen). I truly do feel blessed and loved to have you all in my life!
